Hello All,

I posted over at the speaker section also, I didn't get too much feedback.
What do you guys think about this speaker - I am really tempted to pull the trigger and try these out.
I was told there was a 3 week trial period, - you can listen within that time and if you are not happy you can send them back.
They received excellent reviews in Europe!
the dealer for these in near Boston.

Mike

Their website calls it a "bass refley" design..typo.

4-8 ohms?. Kind of vague there. I'd see and listen in person first.

May I ask who the dealer in USA is?

For my aesthetic tastes, these are very attractive speakers. I would be tempted to try also.

I listened to the large Orangutans. At the time, I had Altec Model 19s and didn't find the Devores did anything better than my Altecs and were outclassed in the dynamics department. Both nice speakers though.

Always nice to have options for decently sensitive speakers...

But it was only for the weekend - in Europe they sell for 2500 euro I believe
I put the link below.
All of the reviews that are on the link on my first post are all very positive (there are close to a dozen) all from Europe.
Heco has been around a long time, and I believe they may make their own drivers?
I really like the retro look too...95db efficiency 11" woofer...
